Killed by gun January 13, 1999, at age 24
John Cornelius Trotter was a security guard. He loved his job and looked forward to going to work every day. He loved music, basketball and football. He also loved spending time with his family. He loved his mother dearly and was very concerned about her health and well being. He was the father of one son, Danone Williams. John was engaged to a very nice young lady and had planned to be married.
John is loved and missed very much by family, loved ones and friends. He was a very respectful young man. He did not like any type of arguing or fighting. I miss my son very much. Nothing or no one can fill the emptiness in my heart. I truly wish that my son were still with me. Because he was shot and killed, he will never live out his dreams.
